Going the Distance

Athletes begin their careers as children or teenagers and carry the training mind-set throughout life. Competition and winning become their lives. Each new level of play takes them closer to the ultimate goal of winning a world championship or national championship game. Coaches train individuals who then come together as a team. There come times when teams lose their edge and the game suffers. The athlete suffers as well while trying to regain focus, motivation or stamina. Trying to get back to the top is a tough, stressful period that requires athletes take a self-inventory and ask if they really want to continue in the profession. When yes is the answer but training is not enough, athletes need to check their balance.

There is balance in life and the key to finding the balance is in exercising three basic parts of the human experience: Mind, body and spirit; each of these, when out of alignment, cause unnecessary stress. In fact, alleviating stress is the best possible way to bring balance. Stress in moderation creates competition, artistry and ambition. These make people better and society stronger. They are the foundation of athletics and great feats in athletic history come from people who are experiencing stress. Too much stress, alternately, brings health problems and lowers the ability to focus on what needs to get done.
